With our improved OLine and running game, our receivers should look better this year
Hes right we're awful wr and te
But idk who was out there in this draft that wouldve been a huge upgrade.
And for Rogers, I would prefer him who lit up the SEC for a year over a random guy from Lehigh we just signed. I'm sure Cincy doesn't regret taking a shot with Burfict last year since he led the team in tackles.
Some people are drinking too much kool-aid.
Milliner-Geno-Aboushi were all great value picks.
Still not sure of Richardson, and where he will play. Wanted guys like Phillip Thomas, Rambo, Swope, Rogers, Keenan Allen, Patton in round 3-7.
Hill was known as an extremely raw project when we drafted him. He can clearly generate seperation. If the kid could just learn how to catch with his hands instead of his chest, then the sky is the limit. I haven't given up on him.
The Jets are walking away from the draft adding two bluechip prospects to the defense, solidifying the OL and running game, and now have their QB of the future.
I can't complain
Would I like a dynamic receiver or TE? You betcha.
But we'll have plenty of resources to install that component next year when we'll have 12 draft picks and around $40 million in cap space.
The Jets decided to build the foundation before they went for the fancy trimmings.
And I respect Idzik for that.
check the patsie receivers of late?
i see more of a silver lining for the jets receivers. was sanchez the problem? hill may have been cringing because sanchez could never seem to be decisive with his throws. so the receivers were constantly being forced to catch in coverage. as for holmes, we'll see what happens with him this season. he's essentially playing for his job so he might be good. te needs to be addressed but keller wasn't as good as he needed to be either. cumberland may surprise or maybe the aussie guy will work out or someone else.
Another point I just contemplated was the fact that we are not competing at all this season, perhaps after we complete another bottom ten finish, we stock up on play-makers next draft?
If your building the foundation first, you're not drafting a QB at 36. I love Geno, but their handcuffing him without any weapons. They need someone who can create something out of nothing. Someone who can bail Geno out. That's why I would've went Eifert at 13. Keenan or Patton at 73. Swope, Rogers in the 5th.
1) Kerley might be elite if he had an elite QB throwing to him and a good OC in charge. The OC changed and the QB changed - I am very optomistic.
2) Cumberland: he is and always bill be below average at every facet of TE play. Can't block or catch enough.
3) They did nothing to improve in this area. Next year, there will be 4-5 college teams with better TE's play than the Jets offer.
4) It looks like WR improvement will have to wait for 2014.
If we take out the TE's I would take the Jets WR corps over NE's WR corps.
Amendola has yet to prove consistency in staying on the field. They have no more Welker. Lloyd is gone.
Holmes is a proven veteran, Hill can make plays, but Kerley is the main difference.
Anyone arguing with K-Ro that our recievers aren't the worst in the NFL is fighting a losing battle.
They stink, but so what K-Ro? You can't fill every need on this team- and we are rebuilding from the ground up. You're assuming they throw Geno out there day 1, let's see if that happens....even if it does, he should be protected well with all the meat we have up front.
Milliner & Smith were the best players available on the Jets board when they fell into our lap and that's really the only places in the draft where the Jets strayed away from solidifying the Lines.
